Produced between 1998 and 2004, the Fazer is the predecessor of the Yamaha FZ6. First unveiled at the Paris Auto Show in 1997, it shares parts from other Yamaha models, notably the engine from the YZF600R Thundercat, detuned to give more mid-range power and the front discs and blue-dot calipers from the YZF-R1. Revisions for the 2002 model saw a newer more modern styled fairing similar to the FZS1000 Fazer. This used a newer and better headlight design, an often mentioned criticism of the launch bike. The Fazer was always a well reviewed motorcycle that is generally considered reliable with a top speed of 135mph and an estimated 95bhp.
This one-off build Fazer has been created for custom bike aficionado Joe Daniel Farrand and painted with a Terminator theme. Truly a bespoke example in super condition we are informed the build alone was costed at £25,000. Fitted with a TTS Supercharger and Scorpion exhaust we are told the power output is estimated at 178bhp. Modified with an R6 front end and Metmachex rear swing arm, Protaper Handlebars and all braided hoses, the bike is stunning but it is the brush work that steals the show, and, with perfect timing for the new Terminator movie, this is a spectacular example of artwork and machinery combined.
